Cinderella




Cinderella, 1922. Tha Laugh O Gram Studios. Don't think international conglomerates with banks of computers making highly sophisticated and realistic animation. Instead, think of a couple of cartoonists, in this case, in Kansas City who get together and start to draw simple animations of fairy stories. The drawings are simple and fluid and really a lot of fun. These cartoons needed almost a thousand laboriously drawn pictures for each minute of film. The cartoonists were Ub Iderks and Walt Disney. Iwerks went on to form his own studio and make hundreds of cartoons. I don't know what happened to Disney.

without being cloying. The music does make a difference.

The cat is Julius, not Felix. Julius went on to star in many of the Alice pictures made by Iwerks and Disney.

Subject: Cinderella and Felix?
Wow! Is that Felix the Cat helping with the dishes? I presume the music has been added later. Nice to hear the piano follows (more or less) the mood changes of the story. Reminds me of the time I watched a lot of silent films accompanied by piano music in the Nederlands Filmmuseum (Amsterdam, the Netherlands).
